Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls

Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls Hey peeps! Linden Labs has made it so the SL Home and Garden Expo has a few more days! If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’re missing out on a great way to contribute to Relay For Life. As I stated in my previous post, there are creators with items up for grabs that contribute either 100% sale donations or 50% sale donations to RFL. In addition there is an auction and many creators have decorated homes to compete for the most donations to RFL. One of the homes I visited is on the water and named the Beach Cabin. House No. 11 is a cozy little home with a small living area, spacious foyer and bedroom upstairs, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area perfect for enjoying a view of the water. The dock also offers easy access to moor a boat. Come take a look at the wonderful work Alec Rogue has done on his build and donate some linden if you can to his donation kiosk. Every linden donated is a vote for their home and 100% go to RFL!
Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

Happy exploring. ♥

Some Girls Wear Jeans So Tight ’cause it Feels So Right, Yeah

Some Girls Wear Jeans So Tight 'cause it Feels So Right, Yeah

February, the month of love and romance, is almost over. While most think of it as the time for couples, it’s also a good time to show ourselves a bit of self-love. A reminder if you will, that YOU are amazing and deserving of love just the way you are. Whether you fit into one of society’s supposed “perfect” boxes or dance to the beat of your own drum, we’re all a work in progress just trying to win our battles each day. So in honor of love and being true to ourselves, treat yourself this month. Buy yourself your favorite treat, watch your favorite show or movie, and just take a moment each day to look in the mirror and tell yourself “I’m awesome the way I am.”

With the onset of spring fast approaching, I often find myself wanting to redecorate to give my surroundings a fresh look. Sprucing up my home is therapeutic for me and I’ve found some lovely things recently. =EC Designs= has created some fun new furniture sets for your homes inworld which are currently being exclusively sold at the SL Home and Garden Expo. The Home and Garden Expo is a huge event that supports Relay For Life, a cause near and dear to many of us. One of their new adorable sets that is up for 50/50 Donations is the Garden Patio Set. Included in this set are a loveseat, chair, and table that are spring green and golden yellow. Both the chair and the loveseat have several female and male single sits which can be accessed in any sitting spot. Couples can cozy up together on the Loveseat to enjoy a nice afternoon in the sun.

If you’re looking for living room pieces, they have you covered there too with their Lawson Living Room set that has two different loveseats, an armchair, coffee tables, and a lamp which is one of their 100% donation sets. Their Gemini Lounger is up for 100% RFL donations as well. If you’re up for hunting, their Laced Up Chair is their hunt prize and will add a fun quirky vibe to any room in your house. Lastly, they have an item up for auction for the Expo. The Sheltered Lounge provides a cozy shady spot to relax or cuddle up with your loved one, which is being offered up in an event exclusive color. Be sure to check it out and help show some love to the cause!

I Found Solace in the Strangest Place Way in the Back of My Mind

I Found Solace in the Strangest Place Way in the Back of My Mind

Looking back on the past 12 or so months, I have been battling demons and dealing with some of the toughest health issues of my life. Four ER trips, a two-month stint in the hospital following major surgery, and multiple traumas that no one should have to go through made up the majority of my 2019. Every year has its ups and downs, but seldom have I felt close to breaking. I felt betrayed by my body. Unable to get through my day without sheer exhaustion from struggling to function.

And yet…I’ve pulled through the darkness. I’ve climbed over that terrifying mountain and made it to the other side, finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. While I’ve beaten the hardest part of this past year, the road ahead won’t be easy as I heal, strengthen, and grow as a person both mentally and physically. Thankfully, I won’t be alone on my journey. My family, friends, and partner have all been behind me, supporting and cheering me on each step of the way in my recovery. While I’ve never doubted their support, I admit to doubting myself at times. I’m only human.

With the dawn of a new year and a new decade, I hope to find renewed strength and love for myself. 2019 knocked me down but 2020 is already showing promise if I continue to move forward. As always, I’m not going to give in. Not going to fall. I’m still breathing. ♥

I’m Countin’ On You to Carry Me Through

I'm Countin' On You to Carry Me Through

Hello everyone! It’s been some time since I’ve last posted. My Muse took a little holiday but she’s been tempted back by a few events that have recently begun. Today I am sharing an item from one of my favorite shops, =EC Designs=, that is currently on sale at the SL Home and Garden Expo.

=EC Designs= has created a beautiful raft that will be perfect for lazy summer days in the heat on the river. There are so many poses loaded into this raft that you will never run out of options whether you are single or cuddled up with a special someone. Six avatars can sit on the All Aboard Raft which means you have quite a few seating combinations between six singles, 3 couples, or some variation of the two. While couples do need to sit in a certain spot for the poses to mesh appropriately for female and male couples, individuals may sit in any location and choose from female or male pose menus. No matter which menu you’re using, there are TONS of options. While at the SL Home and Garden Expo, this fantastic piece will be discounted and 100% of its sales go to Relay for Life so you will be contributing to a good cause while also getting a good deal! Also peek at their Harboside Gazebo and Porthole Clocks Gacha while you are there.

With the Cart Sale just opening today, more is on the way so check back soon! 🙂

Everybody’s Comin’, Leave Your Body at the Door

Everybody's Comin', Leave Your Body at the Door

Hello monsters and ghouls! There is a new event called Trick or Treat that started October 21st and I am excited to share it with you all! If you like gachas and Halloween, this is an event for you; play for free and play all the gachas like normal or you can buy the VIP Hud which will give you a grand prize once you’ve played each gacha until you collect all prizes. No gacha item is repeated so there is no worries about duplicate items. Find more info on how it all works and landmarks here. Now on to some previews!

I’m still trying to figure out my costume for Halloween so I picked up a few things to mix and match with. At The Little Bat, the Grand Prize is a set of Monochrome Leggings that have several different patterns for the top section to pick from. This set comes in an omega applier. Commons include other leggings variations and mesh nails fitted for Maitreya and Slink hands.

My top is from Squishy Fluff and is one of several of the Treat tops with words on it. It comes fitted for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Kemono, and Ruth2 mesh bodies. Collect all ten tops and get comfy for the house or out and about. Squishy Fluff also has trick prizes that include raisin dresses and Pumpkin Spice Lax.

To complete my look, I picked up a necklace from Astara. They have both good and bad witch crystal necklaces so play until you get one you prefer. Cubic Cherry made cute horns, eyes, and a mask for the grand prize. The horns seemed to match my look for this evening the most and nestle perfectly in my hair. Lastly, I couldn’t forget my Frankenbucket with candy and my gummy worm to keep me energized for partying all night long.

Everybody's Comin', Leave Your Body at the Door

Look out for more previews soon and have fun Trick or Treating!

Who Am I to Disagree?

Who Am I to Disagree?

As we near All Hallow’s Eve, the spook and eerie atmosphere around us seems to slowly grow darker and more sinister. Neighbors put out decorations that seem to watch us in the night when we return home in the dark, superstitions may seem to hold more truth than we would normally give credit, and some people don an alter ego they’ve been planning on all year.

Who Am I to Disagree?

Unlike real life, SecondLife allows us the opportunity to be who we want any time of the year, moment to moment, avatar to avatar. We create the environment we want to live in as well. A popular roleplay in SecondLife involves vampires. In fact, there are many roleplay systems devoted to vampires and werewolves in SL. Many sims are home to clans that live in giant castles and house coffins to slumber in during the day, except in sl it can be night all the time. Dictatorshop has recently been releasing pieces that make up a set perfect for any gothic enthusiast who may have an interest in vampire animations as well. Read on for more on each piece featured in this post!

The Vespera collection encompasses a range of pieces that are perfect for the bedroom or other rooms within a castle or structure of your choice. My favorite piece has to be the Vespera Bondage Bed. The texturing of the bed, ironwork, and wood is beautiful and looks fantastic in both low and high graphic settings. For those who know what to look for, they will also find a lifestyle related symbol subtly worked into the iron on the canopy of the bed. Animation menus are loaded with great poses for you and a loved one or just a friend to snuggle. There are three versions of the bed which will determine the animations you’ll be getting; PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. One part of the bed that took me a bit to figure out was how to access the bondage menus on the Adult Kink version. If you are looking for the very adult animations on this version that are in addition to vanilla, lesbian, and threesome menus, click the footboard of the bed and choose either MaleDom or FemDom to suit your needs. A two step stool rezzes on the side of the bed that you can sit on, or use the metal rings on the bedposts, then play to your heart’s content! Today is the last day to grab it while it is at the Black Fair before it goes full price in the mainstore and marketplace.

Who Am I to Disagree?

At Ultra until November 10th, you can find the Vespera Coffin Chair, which matches the Vespera Coffin Sofa that is also pictured here. Like the bed, both the chair and sofa come in three rating levels, PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. Only the Coffin Chair Adult Kink version has animations specifically for those who want vampire poses for “feeding” or biting in a tasteful manner. Many of the animations match what you will find in  the bed an other Dictatorshop pieces. To change the texture on the chair and sofa, click the logo in the back to change leather colors and metals. Whether you are wanting dark or bright and fun, there is something to fit in any color scheme.

Who Am I to Disagree?

Some men and women feel they are royalty and deserve a throne to fit their status. If you run a clan, the Vespera Throne is perfect for you. Not only does this throne fit in with the rest of the Vespera line, but it also has additional vampire themed animations in the Adult Kink version. Like the other pieces, get this gem in three different version depending on your animation needs. If you look closely, like the bed, the throne features lifestyle related symbols embedded into the metal of the headboard. Find it at Cosmopolitan until the event ends and it moves to the mainstore!

Who Am I to Disagree?

The last piece I have pictured is the Vespera Dragon Armoire, currently being sold at the Red Light District. Unlike the other Vespera pieces, the Armoire is RLV cage that someone can sit in and be controlled by others who click to access the menu. Menus to change textures and security access are inside the Armoire. You can change the wood texture and make the doors transparent or solid. If you’re not interested in the animations, this piece still makes a lovely decorative piece to any boudoir.

Beginning October 21st, a new event called Trick or Treat will be starting and I am part of the blog team covering it. Keep a look out for more soon with peeks at what you can find. Can’t wait? Check it out here.
